It's possible he could have returned to South Africa after serving in WW1? My only slight niggle is that the 1914 roll records in the right hand column, Trans, Cls Z Army Reserve 28th March 1919.
Class Z Army Reserve. In December 1918 soldiers being demobilised were first posted to Class Z. They could return to civilian life but knew they were obliged to return if necessary. The Z Reserve was abolished on 31 March 1920

Here's another Manxman, whose name came up on Facebook - "Robert Varley from Ballasalla, also fought in the Boer war, on the British side."
Bit of a long shot, but can anyone identify him?


Hi Berenice
I will have a look over the weekend for Mr Varley. Are there any other details on him?
Is he connected to the previous post regarding Kerruish? A Robert Varley married a Anna Jane Karran. On 1st trawl there are not many R Varley's ref Boer War. Will dig deeper over the weekend.

Dave......

Good morning, while I am not aware of a connection I can say that JKM Kerruishes mother's maiden name was Karran.

Hello jrkgreen

I hope you enjoyed the Manx Agricultural Show?
I have enclosed a few pointers and possible leads for you to follow up reference Frederick/ Fred Kerruish. There does seem to be a strong link to him and South Africa and I think 1874/5 for a date of birth in my humble opinion . Anyway, I hope these snippets of information may prove useful to you?

A Fred Kerruish aged 27 departed England on the ship called the Medic on 20th July 1901. Destination Cape Town. Profession, Clerk.
No address recorded on ships paperwork.


A Frederick Kerruish (No age recorded) departs on the 10th September 1910 on the Kinfauns Castle for Capetown. Profession, Fitter. No address recorded on ships paperwork.

A Frederick Kerruish aged 53 departs from Durban on the 30th April 1928 on the Caernarvon Castle heading to Southampton. Profession, Engineer. Address recorded as Ballallin Maughold Isle of Man.


1955 Death and probate entry has a Frederick Kerruish death recorded on the 28th of January 1955. He lived at Ballallin House Maughold. He left £13 & 15 shillings to a George Ross Kerruish a harbour board clerk. And a Emmiline May Stobo (Married woman).

Plenty of knots to untie for sure. Quite a few Kerruish's on the Island.
Farming families, Carters and clerks. However, there definitely was a F Kerruish who did serve in the Anglo Boer War as a civilian, I hope it is one of the above? I wish you well in your quest and I hope you will keep the ABW forum up to date on your findings.

Best wishes
